  1. Dell has unveiled a brand new monitor for high-resolution enthusiasts, the UltraSharp 32, which packs an Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) resolution into a 32-inch IGZO panel. The display, designed for media professionals, is capable of outputting 1.07 billion colors...

    So, how many U3014 is it worth? I suspect they will ask for more than $2,000, making it a dubious investment. A set of 3 x U3014 offers a way better experience than a single 4K monitor.

    And since 4K is just too much even for a 32", one needs to set DPI to either 125% (if you have sharp eyes) or better 150%.

    I bought U3014 in April, for around 1K and still think it was an excellent investment. After all, my GTX 780 won't offer good FPS in 4K resolution...

    Its not all about gaming, in fact I would say it has very little to do with gaming.

    No idea about the price but I am almost 100% sure it will be over $2000. The 3007's cost more than that back in the day.

    "The display, designed for media professionals, is capable of outputting 1.07 billion colors as opposed to the standard 16.7 million, and comes with "total color control" via Dell's included UltraSharp Color Calibration Solution software."

    That is just what I have been waiting for because the standard 16.7 million colors does not include the right combination of gamboge-feldgrau-fallow that I so often need to use.

    Keep in mind this is the exact feature set as in U3014, they just added couple inches to it and increased the resolution, I.e. it is the same monkey as before, they just gave him Viagra and put glasses on ;)

    When did this turn into an Apple debate? :p

    Sorry to burst your bubble V. but in the hi-tech world there is no such thing as an excellent investment. If you want an excellent investment, invest in shares, property, stocks etc. but never in electronic equipment.

    The day I spend so much on a monitor is the day they take me away in a straight jacket.

    That makes two of us but for it's price, I don't mind living with the slight inaccuracy.

    Dell, just don't put that friggin AG coating on there! Took me forever to get used to that.

    I've bought a lot of expensive components and monitors in my life. The $1200 I spent on my U3011 was one of the best purchases I have ever made. I have used three 24" 1200p monitors setup in portrait and prefer my single 1600p. Maybe I am just old school?

    Yeah, looking how great it look an ips asus monitor I have with his antireflective semigloss screen (a not very expensive monitor) I don't see why they don't use that amazing protection.

    Can't wait. Even after moving from 1080p to 1440p I can still do with more pixels :p

    Totally agree, semi-glossy coatings nowadays are just as good at cutting glare as the heavy Dell/LG AG coatings.

    This looks fantastic. I would take the ASUS over this since I do not like Dell.
  18. "And since 4K is just too much even for a 32", one needs to set DPI to either 125% (if you have sharp eyes) or better 150%."

    LOL saying you need to use 125% if you have sharp eyes. What a joke. If you have to set it to 125% you do not have good vision. I have used a 3840x2400 display for years with X windows set at 75 DPI (lower than windows default of 96 DPI) so even smaller fonts than windows and this was on a 22 inch display (way higher PPI).

    Yes 203 PPI at standard windows text size will bug people I understand that but if you think you need to have good vision on a display that is under 140 PPI to be at 125% that really is a joke. Its more like:

    100% sizes: Most people
    125% size: Poor vision
    150% size: Really poor vision.

    Don't feed the troll....

    Too bad this is 16:9 aspect ratio.

    I think the 16:9 vs 16:10 debate is pretty much over whether we like it or not...

    Since we're talking Dell, using Dell U2412M, IPS panel, fully adjustable stand and yes 16:10 ratio!!!
    easy to use OSD. 1920 x 1200 native resolution. $300 CAD delivered to my door, not one bad pixel.
    16:10, IPS panel and adjustable stand....SOLD. Extremely happy
    16:10 rules!

    Loooooooooove 16:10, got it on my U2410f, and deal with the 16:9 I've got with my U2211h. I've been using heavy AG screens since 2004 so I'm completely acclimated to them. Since I edit photos on these screens it sorta emulates paper grain depending on the stock I use anyways, so it doesn't matter to me~

    Too bad I can't justify putting down what that monitor is likely to cost... =p

    That's the model I have ,a 3007 WFP-HC to be exact, for some it is very much about gaming. in all its full blown gory editing, video editing .is also very nice to do on it as well..workstation stuff...

    I don't think I'll be upgrading until it dies . I still love it, 10 years in and its still a pleasure to sit down to.supposing its just to read some the wild wild web.and when it dies, I'll be into something new .and money .pfffft.. its only scrap metal and dead trees until you get something nice out of it.
